Yes, this was the REAL KIND.
Jerry had the best back-up singers at the time.

A generation goes and a generation comes,
But the earth remains forever.
Also, the sun rises and the sun sets;
And hastening to its place it rises there again.
Blowing toward the south,
Then turning toward the north,
The wind continues swirling along;
And on its circular courses the wind returns.
All the rivers flow into the sea,
Yet the sea is not full.
To the place where the rivers flow,
There they flow again.
All things are wearisome;
Man is not able to tell it.
The eye is not satisfied with seeing,
Nor is the ear filled with hearing.
That which has been is that which will be,
And that which has been done is that which will be done.
So there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there anything of which one might say,
“See this, it is new”?
Already it has existed for ages
Which were before us.
-Solomon

It seems Jerry in JGB has fewer complaints than Jerry in GD in the later years. I am not sure why though. Maybe less expectations.

I enjoyed going through the later shows that were mentioned as a last show. Frankly, a lot of this was new to me and I understand the critics. I found something of value in these shows even if not as often and not as great as before.

Vermoontains,

I think the reality was that Garcia especially after 1970 was the center of the Grateful Dead and as he slipped so went the band. Say from 1986 it was a downward pull with moments of creativity sprinkled in.
It reminds me of the story of Moses wearing a veil so that the Israelite's would not look upon the fading glory of his encounters with The Almighty.
My take on Jerry Garcia Band was it was much more suited to Garcia's musical tastes and the big well kept secret to me was Jerry didn't just play and sing music HE FELT IT and thru him I felt it. So many of those covers that Garcia dusted off were so sweet.
